About Dental Implants
For a lasting and natural-looking replacement to missing teeth, modern dental procedures at DentalWorks - Brookfield Square in Brookfield, WI by our dentists offer dental implants to repair and bring back a gorgeous, healthy smile. Dental implants surgically insert titanium posts in the jawbone to substitute for the weakened tooth root, so false teeth can be joined for a dependable fit that will not involve food restrictions or adhesives. The false teeth can be shaded and contoured by our dentists to blend with the patient's teeth for a realistic finish. For individuals who are wanting to restore one tooth or many teeth, dental implants at DentalWorks - Brookfield Square can be an ideal, effective option.

What to Expect
Before a dental implant is used, a in-depth oral exam will be completed by our dentists to decide the health and strength of the gums and jawbone. If the person is a suitable candidate for dental implants, dental X-rays and molds will allow our dentists to plan the best placement for the dental implants in the jawbone. The individual can be given local anesthesia and/or local sedation to minimize discomfort while our dentists implant the titanium post into the tooth socket. During the next 3 - 6 months, the jawbone and implant will fuse together while healing and after the implant is strong enough, the false tooth or teeth will be added to the implant by a connector. Our dentists can tweak the implant and replacement teeth for a comfortable and confident fit.
Generally, patients have minor or no pain after their dental implants, but a handful of patients may feel temporary discomfort and tenderness that should be helped with an over-the-counter pain medication, such as aspirin or Tylenol®. To lengthen the wear of dental implants, patients should develop a good home oral care practice including daily brushing, flossing, and anything recommended by the dentist. Bi-annual dental appointments at DentalWorks - Brookfield Square in Brookfield, WI for professional cleanings and exams are also crucial to dental implant care. Dental implants will last many years with proper care, but dental implants may eventually need to be repaired or replaced.
If dental implants are judged to be medically required, the patient's dental insurance company will typically cover some of the dental bill. But, cosmetic dental implants are often not covered by insurance companies. At the time of the patient's initial consultation, the office manager of DentalWorks - Brookfield Square can call about their insurance coverage and review payment options and financing plans.
